As an ongoing effort to support karting at the club level, CKI will once again be awarding drivers whom are first time competitors with the series in the upcoming event, to be held July 23-25 at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, New Jersey.
"CKI remains dedicated to reaching out to the karting community. Along with the first time entrant program CKI is also proud to offer the Karting's Got Talent and Race Lives Near You Programs as well", Kevin Williams commented.
CKI will be granting the top ten first time competitors in overall points for the weekend, a chance for entry awards for any upcoming club, regional or national race weekend event for the remaining 2010 season.
The First Time Entrant Program was introduced at the first WSK North America Event in New Castle, Indiana in April. It continued at the second event in Phoenix in May. Thus far 18 drivers have been awarded with entry fees for future events and nearly $5,000 in entry fees have been presented leading into the New Jersey Event.
